Secoda makes the experience of exploring and using data as intuitive, fast, and useful as using Google Search. Secoda stands for searchable company data and our vision it to continue to work towards a tool that makes browsing for data knowledge as easy as finding a website on Google.
Today, data teams are collecting tons of data, but most employees don't know what data exists, how to use it, and what data to trust. This confusion happens because different components of company data get collected in fragmented tools. Teams use dbt and Snowflake for data cataloging, Google Sheets for events, Confluence for general knowledge, Slack to manage data requests, Mode for reports, Github, Looker, the list goes on and on.
After teams switch to Secoda, data knowledge is centralized in one place. Instead of having to switch between Snowflake, dbt, Confluence Google Sheets, BI tool, and your query editor, Secoda keeps all your data knowledge in one place for everyone who needs it.
We’re Secoda, the second brain for your data team that makes finding metadata, queries, charts and documentation as easy as a google search. Our powered platform supports hundreds of data teams at the world’s fastest growing enterprises, including Ramp, Angel list, and Paystack. We recently raised Seed funding of $2M by Craft Ventures and YCombinator!

At Secoda there are many interesting technical challenges that come when building a collaborative data knowledge base. To give an idea of some of the projects you could be working on, here's an overview of some of the pieces of technology we've built so far.
Secoda's platform is built on top of a Neo4j graph database that makes organizing data resources and finding the between them simple and flexible. We have designed our own SQL parser to automatically find the lineage of data resources in a company's data ecosystem. We have created a SQL editor to run queries against popular data warehouses and built charting capabilities to showcase query results. We've implemented a task engine to schedule and run concurrent extractions from data sources. Our search engine is built on top of Elasticsearch to make searching across data resources fast and efficient. And all of the components in Secoda are organized into a microservice architecture leveraging Docker containers in AWS.
We've just scratched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to problems that we're solving, so if the idea of working to make data be more accessible and and easy to use excites you, come work at Secoda!
